  • 2001
    Age 86
    He died in Alcobendas, Madrid, Spain, at the age of 87 on 20 September 2001.
    More Details Hide Details The period of Pérez Jiménez in power is remembered historically as a government of nationalist roots. His government was based on an ideological pragmatism characterized by the Doctrine of National Well, that the regime expressed in the New National Ideal would be the philosophical beacon to guide the actions of the government.
  • FIFTIES
  • 1968
    Age 53
    His political legacy known perezjimenismo was upheld by the Cruzada Cívica Nacionalista (CCN; Nationalist Civic Crusade) party, which held seats in Congress from 1968 to 1978.
    More Details Hide Details In recent years there has been a revival of perezjimenismo and the New National Ideal, with numerous groups revising and upholding the legacy of Marcos Pérez Jiménez. Pérez had four daughters with his wife, Flor Chalbaud. He also has a daughter with Marita Lorenz - her patrimony suit delayed his extradition from the United States.
    In 1968, he was elected to the Senate of Venezuela for the Nationalist Civic Crusade, but his election was contested, and he was kept from taking office.
    More Details Hide Details A quick law was passed whereby former prisoners were excluded from participating in the governmental process.
  • FORTIES
  • 1963
    Age 48
    He moved to the United States, where he lived until 1963, when he was extradited to Venezuela on charges of embezzling $200 million during his presidential tenure.
    More Details Hide Details The 1959–63 extradition of Perez, related to Financiadora Administradora Inmobiliaria, S.A., one of the largest development companies in South America, and other business connections, is considered by academicians to be a classic study in the precedent for enforcement of administrative honesty in Latin American countries. Upon arrival in Venezuela he was imprisoned until his trial, which did not take place for another five years. Convicted of the charges, his sentence was commuted as he had already spent more time in jail while he awaited trial. He was then exiled to Spain.
  • 1958
    Age 43
    In January 1958, there was a general uprising and, with rioting in the streets, Pérez left the country, paving the way for the establishment of the Fourth Republic of Venezuela.

  • 1957
    Age 42
    Pérez Jiménez was up for reelection in 1957, but dispensed with these formalities.
    More Details Hide Details Instead, he held a plebiscite in which voters could only choose between voting "yes" or "no" to another term for the president. Predictably, Pérez Jiménez won by a large margin, though by all accounts the count was blatantly rigged.
  • THIRTIES
  • 1953
    Age 38
    He became president on 19 April 1953.
    More Details Hide Details Soon afterward, he enacted a constitution that gave him dictatorial powers. Pérez Jiménez (widely known as "P.J.") changed the name of the country, which had been "United States of Venezuela" since 1864, to the "Republic of Venezuela". This name remained until 1999, when it was changed to the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela by a Constitutional referendum. During his government, Pérez Jiménez undertook many infrastructure projects, including construction of roads, bridges, government buildings, large public housing complexes and the symbolic Humboldt Hotel & Tramway overlooking Caracas. The economy of Venezuela developed rapidly during his term. Like most dictators, Pérez was not tolerant of criticism and his government ruthlessly pursued and suppressed the opposition. Opponents of his regime were painted as communists and often treated brutally. While Pérez was president of Venezuela, the government of the United States awarded him the U.S. Legion of Merit. Foreign capital and immigration were also highly promoted during his presidency, especially from European communities such as those of Spanish, Italian and Portuguese origin. Perez also pushed for vast and ambitious infrastructure programs, based on the policy of reinforced concrete, with construction of buildings, large and modern highways, which linked and renewed ties between states and other major works which greatly modernized the country.
  • 1952
    Age 37
    When early results showed that the opposition was ahead and would win, the junta suspended the election and made Pérez provisional president on 2 December 1952.

  • 1948
    Age 33
    Fears of cuts in pay for soldiers and a lack of modernized army equipment led Pérez Jiménez and Lt. Colonel Carlos Delgado Chalbaud to stage another coup in 1948.
    More Details Hide Details Betancourt and Gallegos were exiled, political parties were suppressed, and the Communist Party was once again banished by the Military Junta headed by Delgado Chalbaud, Luis Felipe Llovera Páez and Pérez Jiménez. After a clumsily arranged kidnapping that ended in the murder of Delgado Chalbaud, the Military Junta changed its name to a Government Junta, and reorganized itself with Pérez Jiménez pulling the strings of puppet President, Germán Suárez Flamerich. However, when results of the much anticipated 1952 elections due to illegalities of the parties in conjunction of the underground AD party that were showing signs of a massive defeat for the military government, the Junta allegedly fixed the results and named Pérez Jiménez as the winner. The junta called an election for 1952.
  • 1945
    Age 30
    In 1945, Pérez Jiménez participated in a coup that helped install Democratic Action party founder, Rómulo Betancourt, as President of the Revolutionary Government Junta. The government would later become known as El Trienio Adeco. After a constitutional change providing universal suffrage, elections were held in 1947 which resulted in the election of party member, Romulo Gallegos.
